  1. This is my first shot at "picking". Since I picked these up at the local Restore, it may not qualify as legitimate picking, but you get the idea. The brace was $10.00, and the saw was $5.00. The saw looked pretty good, needing only some cleaning. The website Common Woodworking has a guide on sharpening and setting the teeth, so I may be referring to that if needed. My main concern is with the knob on the brace. It spins freely enough, but seems to be very loose and wobbly. Is this normal, or are there some parts, bearings or such, that I need to be looking at? As for bits, if I start looking at used bits at yard sales, etc., once I get past the obvious defects like broken spurs, points, or bent shafts, what else should I be looking for? Any info would be welcome. Here are the pics of what I scored. The saw is 25 3/4" along the teeth.

    Auction Wins

    A few weeks ago I won a few items in an online auction. Two of the air tools are Ingersoll Rand. I say won because of the price too. All this for $45.00. Loving it.
  3. Made it up to Nashville weekend before last to do a little picking. As I was walking down the rows I saw this piece sitting on a table. it it caught my eye and I had to have a closer look. It is called a Ruler Clock patented in 1935. This one still winds up and keeps time. I thought it would make a nice piece for my desk so it had to come home with me. Patriot Picker.
  4. On the way to picking up the GrandBRATS, stopped in a store in Brandt, OH. walked past a bunch of shelves, filled with tools of all sorts. Well, at least the added on room to the store...Found one item I could afford today, that I didn't already have Price was marked as a dollar. Carried it around while checking the other Treasures...decided to pay for this and head on down the road.. Handed the fellow four quarters, and he gave me back one...handle was a bit dried out, ferrel was steel.. got back home, and took this rusty mess to the shop for a bit of rehab....took a while, but.. It does look a little bit better...Handle was given a wipe-on, wipe-off coat of the Witch's Brew.. Didn't want to sand the handle, too many details on it. Bevel WAS a bit crooked, got that fixed..I hope.. Maybe? $0.75 gouge? Might just do...
  5. I had a picker friend of mine contact me about some planes he picked. Most of it is rust, but that is good. We did a little trading and I got the iron planes and parts and a few wooden planes. More projects! I'm going to have to fire up the electrolysis system.
  6. Took in a couple shops with my daughter recently and found these. The wooden razee appears homemade with no stamp and a buck iron. It has a beech body with walnut wedge and tote. Tote was in n pretty tough shape so i fashioned a similar one using the old one as a pattern. The owner decorated this plane and wedge with lines on top and sides of the body. It is pretty neat and my 13 y.o. Is disputing whether it should hers or mine. We may have agreement to share this one. The other was also unmarked and without an iron. A Stanley 110 iron fits pretty well for size. The cap iron resembles those on a Stanley scrub plane but the mouth does not. Beech tote and knob on this one.
  7. Last weekend Beth and I left out on Friday for Nashville, TN to do a little Picking. Here are a few of the items I was able to pick while we were out. I will go into detail about them each in another post. Just wanted to update you a bit with what I was able to fine. I ran across this old bench vise late in the day and I am glad I did as it is heavy and I wouldn't want to carry it. Thankfully I had a fold up buggy I could put things in. The vise is a Richards-Wilcox from Auroro, Ill. Had a great time and left some pieces I really hated to walk away from, but as Kenny Rogers said, "You got to know when to hold them and know when to fold them." It was nice to be back out Patriot Picking
  8. I'll update you all on me in another post but for now I will focus on some fun picking my wife and I did Friday. It was the Meriwether Lewis, the Lewis of Lewis and Clark, festival this weekend. It actually begins on about Wednesday and runs through the weekend. It is like one of those long yard sales, but a little different. Every field of any size will be filled with tents and people selling just about everything you can think of. We started at about 7:30 Friday morning and had to stop when the rain set in around 4:00 pm. I did run across a few nice finds that will get added to the shop and collection. So I picked up the cool neon Stetson sign. It does have one tube broken, but we have a neon sign dealer here so I am going to take it to him and see if it can be repaired. There is the case knife sign, a Belknap block plane, two brass plumb bobs, one in a case and both with a retractable string, several boxwood rulers, most Stanley's but one not marked and one Rabone from England, a Seymore chalk line and not in the picture is a 8" drawknife. The little block plane was in great condition and has the Belknap Bluegrass label on the back. I have never seen one but the dickering was good so I got it. I did a deal with a guy on the seven boxwood rulers and got him to throw in the Seymore Chalk line. The three caliper rulers and Stanley and there is one Stanley Sweetheart in the bunch. The long ruler at the top is a four fold 36" ruler It has one bad chip in it but other than that it is in good condition. The second one down is rare and worth around 150.00. The Seymore chalk line is what the company started making after they stopped making the canisters for the Tommy Guns. Wow you go from Tommy Guns to Chalk lines. I guess people do what they have to do to make a living. But my best find of the day was this Stanley No 45 complete in the box. This one is from around 1900 and is in mint condition. The box has a bit of wear but is still complete and even has the lid. I have found the before and the box was missing the lid and or all the pieces were not there. The small box on the inside with the blades still has the table on it. The kit even had the wooden handle screwdriver that came with it in the box. I found one similar to this one several months back and let it get away while negotiating. I did try to do a bundle deal on this one. The owner also had a mint Stanley No 2 and we got to within 50.00 but just couldn't get any closer and I walked away from it. I had a sick feeling in my stomach when I did. I feel like I will find another but this one was so slick. Anyway it was a nice day out of the house and some time with my wife doing something we both enjoy. She is got several thing also and she is a real negotiator. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and make some adjustments. But I must say, there is no better therapy than to be out Patriot Picking!!!
  9. We went pickin today in Portland Indiana. This year is the 50th Steam and Gas Engine Show and there are always tables set up with folks ready to wheel but not necessarily deal. About 10 acres of tables in fact. I was able to buy three items that I really didn't need but wanted. I bought a #20 7 1/2" Stanley Sweetheart tri square with rosewood handle for $5, a Stanley 110 plane for $3 and a Starrett #4 12 inch square for $22. I paid a bit more for the Starrett square than I wanted but it is like new and I have a twin to it at home. Here's the obligitory pics for John Moody.
